The minimum tyre tread level
In the UK, at least three-quarters of each tyre surface should have a minimum tread of 1.6mm.
If you want to check this yourself, you can use the 20p test. Simply place a 20p coin into the lowest tread – if you can see the outer rim on the coin, your tyre tread is below 3mm and requires a professional assessment.
Bear in mind though – unless you’re prepared to check all the treads on all of your tyres, this isn’t the most reliable test. Call us today on 01903 733 220 for professional advice and a quote.
How to check your tyre pressure?
To check your tyre pressure, you need a tool called a pressure gauge which attaches to the tyre valve. You need to bear in mind that not all vehicles are the same and different models need different pressure levels. The amount of pressure you need should be on a sticker just inside the driver door, or in the car manual.
To use the gauge, remove the screw caps from the tyre valve and press the gauge onto the end of it. If the pressure is too low, add some air until it is at the recommended level for your vehicle. If it’s too high, let the air out of your tyre until it falls within the recommended level.
